Great Southern Gun & Knife Shows, LLC, started by Ernie and Helen Bean in 1984, are now managed by Shawn and Elizabeth Bean. We have been in business for nearly 40 years producing high-quality shows that are consistently well attended by the public. Our hallmark of intensive advertising and our dealer-oriented philosophy makes us one of the top shows in the USA.

The public is invited to bring their gun and trade for the gun they've always wanted. Come see the hundreds of tables full of new and old guns, knives, ammo, gun parts, reloading supplies, holsters and other related products at discounted prices. Our shows have everything necessary to meet the needs of hunters, collectors and gun enthusiasts.

We advocate high ethical standards of firearms trading that promotes positive public perceptions of Gun and Knife shows. We proudly support the nra.org in their efforts to keep our right to bear arms.
